"This issue has become fairly hysterical", Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said.

"The case of journalist Khashoggi is, of course, something incredible, I told the Saudi king yesterday in our telephone conversation", Merkel said at a press conference with Czech prime minister Andrej Babis.

A tearful Cengiz said in a TV interview on Friday that she never would have let Khashoggi enter the consulate if she had thought that "Saudi Arabia authorities would hatch a plot" to kill him. Al Jubeir also praised the current U.S. administration's Middle East strategy, especially when it comes to containing Iran.

"We will maintain our "twin imperatives", as stated by Secretary of State Pompeo, of protecting America and holding accountable those responsible for this murder", he told the forum. Istanbul police say that Khashoggi was tortured and then murdered, and his body dismembered with a bone saw.

Prosecutors in Istanbul had wanted the 18 Saudi nationals to be "brought to justice" in the country where they are alleged to have killed The Washington Post columnist on 2 October.

Saudi Arabia, the Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt cut off travel and trade ties with Qatar in June 2017, accusing it of backing their archrival, Iran, and supporting terrorism.

India announce unchanged 12-member squad for second ODI
Kohli, who achieved the feat in his 205th innings, surpassed India legend Sachin Tendulkar , who did it in 259 innings in 2001. Bangladesh, England, New Zealand and Zimbabwe are yet to have a player reach the 10,000-run mark in this format.

Turkey will eventually reveal other "information and evidence" about the writer's killing, the country's president Recep Tayyip Erdogan said.

Khashoggi, a Saudi journalist and columnist for The Washington Post, had gone missing since entering the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

Khashoggi had gone to the consulate for paperwork related to his planned marriage to Cengiz.

On the matter of Jamal Khashoggi's killing and the ongoing investigation, Al Jubeir said the Saudi government is committed to finding all the facts, and said it is working closely with the Turkish government to do so.

In his remarks at the Manama Dialogue security conference, Mattis went through a list of what he described as disruptive Iranian behavior - a message most Gulf allies will view positively since they share similar concerns about Iran's increasing influence in Syria and Iraq.

The announcement came a day after the Saudi prosecutor said that based on evidence supplied by Turkey the murder appeared to have been premeditated - the first time Saudi authorities had made such an admission.

Everton boss Silva: Mourinho hasn't changed to me
With United set to face Everton on Sunday afternoon, Jose Mourinho has been talking about the struggles of his number 7. Theo Walcott admits that there is no good time to play Manchester United as Everton prepare to travel to Old Trafford.

After a succession of denials that Riyadh had anything to do with his disappearance, the kingdom eventually admitted that Khashoggi had died, but said it was in a fight with Saudi officials who had embarked on an unsanctioned extradition operation.

Jubeir did say that six officials have been dismissed to date, on top of another 18 it has arrested in connection with the attack.

"I do not trust the USA", she told the Telegraph.

The European Parliament on Thursday passed a non-binding resolution urging an EU-wide arms embargo on Saudi Arabia in response to the murder.

"They had a very bad original concept, it was carried out poorly and the cover-up was the worst in the history of cover-ups", he told reporters last week.
